My view for the next week. i'm at a little cabin on the banks of the edisto river, watching the black water flow by, listening to birds and insects sing. i'm lucky enough to be one of the 2017 artists in residence for @scstateparks. i'll be spending my days sketching wildlife and carving new blocks, hiking some riverside trails and maybe even slip my toes in the edisto (while watching for gators, of course). i wouldn't have been able to do this without the incredible support of my amazingly marvelous husband, and wonderful family, who are managing the hustle and bustle of our three kids while i'm gone. i am so grateful for this opportunity rest, relax and reflect, disconnect a bit, and to be creative in nature for hours on end. i'll be spending a lot of time on this screened porch, watching the sun reflect on the waters below.
